Horoscope for September 2017

Horoscope for  September  2017


Sunstar Banner

Tip of the Week:

Well, this is it. The last official week of summer has arrived and it has been an epic summer indeed. I am mostly referring to the extreme weather and natural disasters. Persistent and devastating forest fires, record setting hurricanes, massive flooding, huge earthquakes, tidal waves, drought, booming meteorites and probably more. And now on September 23rd, planetary alignments that are evoking credulous imaginations regarding biblical prophecies are gaining popular attention. Biblical is an apt word for this list of catastrophic events.


All of this occurring in a Universal 1-Year is an important consideration with respect to the fact that the 1st of a 9-year cycle tends to produce the anchoring theme for the entire cycle! Given the prospects that there is truth in this statement, we are wise to think strategically. The saying, ‘plan for the worst and hope for the best’, come to mind here.


The question is how, how to plan? The holistic answer is to focus on all fronts: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. This could translate as follows:


Mental: Be aware and have plans of action in mind and get clear about what and who is important in your life.

Emotional: have faith in the rhythm and flow of life and do not allow your imagination to conjure or dwell on fearful outcomes.

Physical: Have things that allow you to pack quickly, travel light and still everything you need, as with going camping. This could include emergency money or an activated credit card without debt on it.

Spiritual: Realize that life is not merely about surviving and/or accumulating stuff or even ticking off the next item on your bucket list; it is about living fully in the here and now, which implies living in, through and from the heart, and recognizing that the tests and lessons of life and the quality of our response to them are the takeaways of the soul.


Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

Mixing work with play continues as the main theme. The golden mean is struck when your work becomes more playful or creative interests take on a more serious tone of intention. Love is in the air all the while. Whether it involves someone, something or some place, or all of the above is for you to decide. Either way, the heat is on…still.


Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

Home and family remain at the forefront of your priorities and focus. Creating an atmosphere of harmony, balance and fairness are featured. While your work or employment front is part of the plot, it is a secondary interest. Working to create a harmonious atmosphere that supports productivity and financial flow, however, is important.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Getting down to the nitty gritty continues. This process began a few weeks ago. It includes getting organized. Yet, there is a creative factor featured, as well. You are excited about the prospects of creative projects that you have conceived over the past several months. A learning curve may be involved and renovations of some kind, as well.


Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are in the mood to get a lot done. This implies attending to a variety of fronts and/or multitasking. Somehow, a break with the past has been unfolding. This may simply be the signal for new interests and projects to take hold. It may come with a feeling of: ‘been there, done that, so what else can I do?’


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

An important momentum has been steadily emerging. Now you have hit the stride and patient perseverance is the key now. There may remain some important areas required new initiative. A learning curve is implied. Having a plan and getting organized remains important, so make refinements and adjustments there as necessary.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

Circumstances are calling you out to get more involved. It can be described as ‘joining the club’, somehow. Sometimes what is popular and accepted as the norm is worth recognizing in terms of advantage. This is less about inventiveness and more about getting involved, but the former may have its opportunity as well. Get onboard… or online.


Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

Working diligently behind the scenes is now in focus. This may include some kind of inner work, as well. Overcoming indecision and procrastination are examples of this inner work. Of course, it generally includes outer action, as well. Circumstances are pushing you to contribute to causes greater than your own private interests.


Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Gaining recognition continues as an important theme. This may include popularity or simply acknowledgment of your efforts. But, getting rewarded somehow is also on your mind. Yet, you may be dealing with the dual desire of being seen and heard yet also wanting peace and quiet. This is a complicated combination but, with awareness and strategy, you could achieve both.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A process of seeing a bigger picture continues. Generally, this is your department. Yet, the specifics depend on your situation. Looking to the long term regarding your health and whether your diet and lifestyle help or hinder it may well be the most important consideration. Spiritual interests may also be on your mind, such as questions regarding soul, karma, and reincarnation.


Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are entering important final chapters of a significant evolutionary cycle that began almost three years ago. It includes a clearing process of old relationship involvements both personal and professional. Or, the emphasis could be on attitudes, expectations and behavior patterns regarding relationships. Keep an open mind and cooperate.


Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Circumstances are leading you to get more involved. This includes deepening your focus upon certain relationships and may include the need to let go of other commitments. Research and gaining new knowledge and skills are all likely themes of activity.  The time has come to increase productivity.


Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

A process of making dreams reality is underway. Plans, goals, and ambitions that have been waiting their turn, perhaps even for many years, are now destined to take center stage. This process probably began weeks or even months ago, but now you are entering the fast lane. Focus to work diligently, patiently and constructively and be careful of cutting criticism.
